FAB Recycling Ltd Managing Director, Jason Cross said: “Having joined the company only a few years ago as Business Development Manager, I have been fortunate enough to see at first hand the positive impact Tim has had on our business, both internally and externally. I am looking forward to working alongside Tim on a strategic level and continue to support him to achieve his own goals alongside that of our companies”.

Tim McCarthy added: “I am genuinely delighted that Jason and all my colleagues at FAB have shown confidence in my abilities; this position is without doubt the pinnacle of my career. These are exciting times for the development of “green” parts and their integration into the UK’s fleet and accident repair markets.

FAB has been one of the shining lights over the past few years, promoting not only the use of green parts, but also the standards necessary to give confidence to their buyers. Here at atfProfessional, we are very impressed with the effort that has been made to give the customers the same level of satisfaction when buying green as they demand from buying new.
